They have served thousands of youth in the DC for the past 15 years, providing them safe, fun, physical activity and mentoring in a natural setting. Currently their main focus is on low income families and at-risk youth in the Northern Virginia community of Sprinfield.

In 2012 TrailsforYouth.Org celebrated their 10th year as an award-winning children's health organization.

In 2015, Diamondback Bicycles partnered with the organization in a multi-year agreement to provide new equipment to replace the aging equipment used by the organization.[3]
